Question about 2005 Dodge Magnum
You had a short, which kept blowing the fuse. Now the wire may have been pinched somewhere and finally come apart. You now need to trace the circuit with a voltage tester of some kind. Look for 12v dc at the fuse, then the switch input, the switch output and along the wire which usuall runs along the drivers side under the moulding at the door sile, under back seat into the trunk to the lamps. The fron light wires go through a grommet in the firewall up to the lights. Was the car in an accident or had work done just before this started.

For about $50 you can buy a signal tracer pair at Harbor Freight. First you check at one of the lights to ensure there is no voltage. They you clip one lead from the signal generator to the power, and the other to ground. Then you follow near the wire, with the button pushed on tone receiver. You trace back until the tone disappears. That will be where the insulation on the wire cut through and shorted out.
